It’s not about the child knowing how to communicate, it’s about a child, any child, not necessarily putting together “my tummy hurts so it must be the medicine,” or “My head hurts, I think it’s the medicine.” Kids develop the skills to interpret and verbalize how they’re feeling and make inferences and correlations as they age and mature.
